Golly. I see my post about the Stephen Harper and that mysterious conscription story has caused quite a commotion on the internet.
With many people wanting to know more, and others claiming it's a hoax, or as I suggested it might be, an April Fool's joke gone horribly wrong.
And since I don't expect CBC management or the Con regime to clear things up, because they're both as transparent as mud, I'll probably never know where the story came from.
But what I do know, as I said in my post, is that whether it's a hoax or not, its premise could not be more plausible, for the following reasons:
Firstly, as has been proven time and time again, Stephen Harper will do or say ANYTHING to please his
Because his slavishness to Netanyahu's racist and militaristic policies knows no limits
And secondly, as I also said in that post, ever since he came to power he has been trying to reinvent our history, as one of bloody conflict.
Starting with the War of 1812...
Which he spent almost $ 30 million dollars promoting.
When in fact our history is the triumph of compromise over violence.
And his attempts to reinvent himself as a Great Warrior Leader couldn't be more phony...
Or more ridiculous...
So introducing conscription fits his pattern of behaviour. It would be yet another way of militarizing this country, and destroying the once decent and peacemaking Canada he hates so much.
Which is why I'm not prepared to declare it a hoax yet. Not just because I still believe the story was written, was on the CBC website, and was taken down in a clumsy manner which left another webpage masking a 504 page (more on that later).
But also because it sounds only too plausible to me.
And all I can say to those who can't admit that possibility, or can't seem to understand what Harper has done to this country.
Is that they deserve to go down the memory hole of history.
Along with Harper and his ghastly Cons...
And yes, until the conscription story is clarified to my satisfaction, I will use it against him.
And my message to young Canadians will be a simple one:
Hey kids, get off your asses or your apathy.
Vote to crush those foul un-Canadian Cons, and their depraved leader.
Or get ready to be forced to join Harper's monstrous army...
